She looked across at the couple.

She watched them silently.

She longed for the happiness she witnessed.

She quietly wept.

Standing alone, she yearned for the warm embrace of love and friendship.

She was deeply insecure, craving for acceptance.

She was privy to the empathy of faithful companionship.

She had starved herself of affection. 

She thirsted for a healthy relationship.

She finally realized she could enjoy her journey.

She knew it was time to let go and grow through her pain.

Now, she had a goal to love, accept, enjoy, respect, cherish, and take care of herself.
